I'm not a Gunners fan, but I'm Lucas Podolski/Per Mertesacker/Die Mannschaft (German National Team) fan and they play for Arsenal.  This is a great little story about how sports 'stars' have hearts too.

The Running Man - Arsenal Tour 2013 - Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny tells the story of how the extraordinary exploits of one Vietnamese fan got him a very special ride on the team bus.

Do you think Munenori Kawasaki is excited for coming in and hitting a game-winning 2 run double, after coming in to replace an injured all-star?  Then his team mates take the opportunity to 'welcome' him to the team mid-interview.  This is all kinds of amazing and everything that sports should be!

Funny post game interview with Munenori Kawasaki. He ends up getting pied and gets gatorade shower.

The Crazy German Coach Who Taught Dirk Nowitzki How to Shoot

Sean Van Koughnett on basketball and devotion to one's craft.  Growing up, Sean was probably the best basketball player that I knew in Kitchener, ON, Canada.  He was 5 years older and I would be lying if I said I didn't look up to him a bit.  He played for the Canadian National Junior Team.  He was the last guy to be cut from the National Men's Team for the Sydney Olympics.  Years later, I got to know Sean a bit after running a basketball drop-in he would play us vs. Sean.  He was that good!

Jose Calderon is probably my favourite former (sadly) Raptor of all time.  This is what happens when you get traded to another team and show how used to a place you became...

Jose Calderon accidentally heads towards the Raptors' locker room at halftime of the Raptors-Pistons game.
